Children are ferried about by car from a young age. In Hollywood and across Florida, it’s how most children get to school, doctor’s appointments, activities, and everywhere else. Being a passenger in a car is also the most dangerous part of a child’s typical day.
Each year, some children in Florida find their futures permanently changed by a serious crash. Even with airbags and other safety features, cars still pose a serious risk for children. Children can crash into the back seat, can be thrown around, and can be seriously injured in any car accident. Young children may not know to cover their heads or to brace themselves in a collision, which can cause serious damage.
